Ferragamo Spring Shoes and Bags no longer for Moms

Honestly, I don't even know where to start. Ferragamo is one of those brands that has quiet elegance, steadfast quality, and surprising comfort, but can often be categorized as something only my mom/aunt would wear. This Spring, I am compelled to reformulate my conception of Ferragamo because these shoes and bags are so fresh and cool that women who haven't had children will be drawn towards them too.

I think the freshness of Ferragamo Spring Bags is due to all the yellow color they have cleverly worked into the bags. The yellow crocodile top handle bag (top left) and the yellow python clutch (bottom right) are so ladylike and interesting, while the natural snakeskin top handle (top second from left) and grey python tote (middle, second from right) maintains Ferragamo's usual luxury with quality. And for those of you who do not like exotic skins (gasp!), I thought that the optical white calfskin totes (top right and middle left), the black eco-leather hobo (middle, second from left...YES, it's ECO-leather!), yellow calfskin and natural fabric top handle (top, second from right), and yellow calfskin clutch with wicker frame (bottom, second from right) should steal your heart nonetheless. Check out the bags individually at the website, they have the clutch with wicker frame in fuchsia ostrich (OMG!) and the python clutch in a pleasant orange too.

As for shoes, I love everything!!! Especially the ankle straps with platform (comes in either a 12cm heel and a 15cm heel). The one with the 15cm heel has gladiator-like weaving along the heels and is in four different colors (nude, white, gold, and bronze). To give you an idea of how awesome these platforms are, they are priced at $2,200. Why are they priced so expensive? Because they can. The rest of them cost as much as a Christian Louboutin ($690 and up), but I know some people who would rather buy Ferragamo because they last forever and don't suffocate your feet like the Louboutins sometimes do. (Note: Louboutin shoes often run at least one size too small).
